PROPOSED MBC Governing Documents & Processes
Welcome to the MBC Governing Documents & Processes webpage. Registered Missouri Baptists attending the MBC Annual Meeting Oct. 23-25 in Raytown have a historic opportunity to adopt revised and updated MBC governing documents.
The vote occurs as one of the first items of business Oct. 23.
These documents were accepted at last year’s annual meeting and, since then, have been open to review and comment by Missouri Baptists. They have been available online, printed in The Pathway, and discussed at numerous regional listening sessions.
Click on the button below to review the final version, which includes all legal reviews and proofreading revisions made over the past year. The documents also are featured in the Bulletin & Book of Reports, provided to all attendees at the annual meeting.
Anyone without Internet access who needs a printed copy may request one by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 800.736.6227 ext. 301.
Please remember that these are “corporate” documents that delineate the behavior of corporations, institutions, and trustees. They do not set MBC strategies, goals, or day-to-day and year-to-year operations, which fall under the responsibility of the Executive Director and the MBC missionary staff.
I appreciate the careful review that so many Missouri Baptists have made of these documents. Our desire all along was to do this important work in the sunshine, with full disclosure of our work and a gracious response to all who raised questions or offered suggestions.
I believe we have accomplished our goal and are offering Missouri Baptists sound governing documents that will serve us well for decades to come.
I hope to see you in Raytown Oct. 23-25. Blessings.
Dr. John Yeats
